England penalty takers: Who has the best record ahead of Euro 2024 semis?

Sports Mole takes a look at the penalty records of every England player in Gareth Southgate's squad ahead of their Euro 2024 semi-final against Netherlands.

With an overall penalty shootout success rate of just 33%, England's reputation for crumbling when it matters most in major tournaments is not entirely unwarranted.

However, the Three Lions were unerring from the spot during their Euro 2024 quarter-final win over Switzerland, firing home all five of their penalties to book their place in the semis.

It may have only been their fourth triumph from 12 previous shootouts, but three of those victories have now come from the last four times they have been taken all the way to penalties, and all of them have come under Gareth Southgate - a man who knows all about heartache from 12 yards.

Cole Palmer, Jude Bellingham, Bukayo Saka, Ivan Toney and Trent Alexander-Arnold all converted against Switzerland, with three of those extending their 100% career records from the spot.

In fact, number one penalty-taker Harry Kane only has the 13th best success rate in the entire England squad when it comes to percentage scored, although he has taken far more than any other player at Southgate's disposal.

So, who would make up England's five best penalty takers should their semi-final with Netherlands go all the way once again?

Here, Sports Mole looks at the past record of every player in the England squad to have taken at least one penalty in their senior careers.
